Manchester United faces Chelsea on Saturday, October 24th at Old Trafford for an English Premier League match.
Manchester United is coming off a big-time UEFA Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain on October 20th by the final score of 2-1. Manchester United has had an iffy start to the Premier League season, but it looks like the club is now heating up at the perfect time. Manchester United's last Premier League match was against Newcastle United, and in that match, Manchester United earned the three points with a 4-1 win on the road. Manchester United is now 2-0-2 and sits in 15th place in the Premier League standings, but the club is bound for a big jump in the standings. Manchester United has scored nine goals and has conceded 12 goals to the opposition, therefore the club still has a -3 goal differential this season.
Chelsea drew to Sevilla FC in its opener in the UEFA Champions League on October 20th. Neither team hit the back of the net in a 0-0 draw, as defense reigned supreme in that match. Chelsea's last Premier League match was against Southampton on October 17th, and in that match, Chelsea earned a 3-3 draw at home. Chelsea is currently 2-2-1 to start the Premier League season, and the club sits in eighth place in the Premier League table. Chelsea has scored 13 goals and has only allowed nine goals to the opposition, therefore Chelsea has a +4 goal differential thus far.
The last time Manchester United and Chelsea met was on July 19th of 2020. In that match, Chelsea took down Manchester United at Old Trafford by the final score of 3-1. However, Manchester United has won three of the past four meetings between the two clubs.
This should make for the most entertaining Premier League match of the day, as we have two clubs that are not off to the best of starts to the season, but we know just how hot each club can get. I expect both teams to score, and overall I think the over is the best play.
